Yes, thanks to all. I have narrowed it down by decuction to a cable from the alternator to the battery for the simple reason that the juice from the battery is getting to the battery, if not jumping it would not turn the solinoid. It's not the alternator because the heiroglyphics on the radio display are gone and I was able to get a CD out of it and play the radio without any strange alien light patterns on the dash.

it has to be a cable going from the alternator to the battery.... I think the old one was bad, maybe it shorted the cable somehow... now if I can get this guy in mumbai to get my printer working on my network via chat, I'll be ok...

I didn't chime in cause the last time I helped with a car and its electrical problems it was for a VW, and I had grown up thinking if it wasn't the battery it was the generator, or the alternator, and now I can't even recall (see? that's how bad I am with this shit) which, but I said, knowingly, "it's the generator/alternator" and the kid took it in and told the repair guy that and he said, "listen, dumbass, they (VWs) DON't have that!"
